View Full Version : Tenants small overpayments

I've had some tenants for a while - 3 sharers.

The rent is paid monthly by x3 standing orders and is always on time. They pay slightly different amounts out of choice due to size of rooms. Oddly they've always overpaid (between them) by a total of £4 per month. I never got round to mentioning it as its such a trifling amount!

However, having recently increased the rent a tad, they have each upped their SO, but the total is again showing an overpayment of £4!

Is this just a simple mistake or am I missing some kind of clever ploy? (I don't know - some kind of legal loophole that benefits them at a later stage?)

I'm going to (finally) bring it to their attention, but I just wondered if anyone had come across it before.

I can't see any ulterior motive or loophole, I just hope they're not maths or statistics students. If you let them know before the December rent payment then 1 months reduced rent will (I am sure) be much appreciated.
